In My Head I'm Not Fifty

oh how my back aches

Where did the time go
look how those candles glow

In my head I'm still twenty
that must have cost plenty

I feel a bit sniffy
there's no way I can be fifty!

50 Reasons
(This is a little poem inspired by the Paul Simon Song "50 Reasons to Leave Your Lover")

The problem is you're not as young as you used to be
But it's not that bad if you think creatively
I'll try and help you think of how to be happy
there must be fifty reasons to celebrate today
So get out the cake, Jake
Blow up the balloon, June
Open the gifts - swift
It's your birthday
Don't be shy, guy
Don't complain, Jane
Enjoy your day, Ray
You don't have to do much
Just enjoy your birthday
it's okay to be fifty
There's so many things you've done
And in these years you've had some fun
so let's celebrate it tonight
there must be fifty reasons to celebrate today
